USAID and the Deep Pockets of the Counterrevolution

On November 3, 1961, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) was created, supposedly to collaborate with the economic and social development of Latin America.

But in reality the funds managed by that organization have been used for repression against countries, organizations, movements and people with ideas of the left, or simply progressive.

Against Cuba, USAID, together with the NED, have served as a front for the actions of the CIA, and as a channel for the funds that finance the counterrevolution.

The Cuba Money Project website, created by the American journalist Tracey Eaton, cited data obtained from USAID’s Foreign Aid Explorer, which indicated that the amount allocated for subversion programs against Cuba, since 1990, was $ 261,395,214.

Since Donald Trump came to the White House on January 20, 2017, USAID has invested almost 50 million dollars to “change the political system” in the our country.

Recently, John Barsa, USAID’s acting administrator of the USAID, joined the anti-Cuban campaign of the Madrid-based counterrevolutionary NGO, Observatorio Cubano de Derechos Humanos, which receives $ 250,000 annually from the NED and $ 127,000 from the USAID.

The CIA front organizations distribute $ 410,000 a year to media outlet DNA Cuba and $ 220,000 each to Diario de Cuba and Cubanet; a veritable dance of millions to try to defeat the Cuban Revolution. American taxpayer money is destined to fall, for the most part, into the deep pockets of the Miami Cuban-American mafia and their hired henchmen, who, as President Miguel Díaz- Canel said, will be left with only the desire to write the epitaph.
